This week was another crazy week for me and I was only able to read one book this week. I chose to skip around on my list and read; The Hobbit by J. R.R. Tolkein. I chose to read this books because I have seen all of The Lord of the Ring movies as well as this movie. I throughly enjoyed the movies and thought it would be nice to read the book as well.
This book is about a hobbit named Bilbo Baggins. He goes on a journey with Gandalf The Gray, and twelve dwarves. They are on a journey to steal Thorin’s treasure at Misty Mountain. They only really brought Bilbo with them because Gandalf only had 13 people without him and he thought that was bad luck. This story also talks about how the first ring (referring to The Lord of the Rings) get into Bilbo’s possession.
I really liked this book and I think watching the movie before hand really helped me understand this books better. I would have to say I would recommend this book to the older level. Possibly 5th to 7th grade. It can be confusing at points and so having an older reading level read it would make it easier. I would recommend this book to others if they really like that sci-fi type of books. Things that can just take their minds to another world.
